Dumb Questions Amnesty

Yes.

8.8 to 7.9

We should have had big last quarters against GC, Freo, Sydney and Adelaide too. Convert properly and our percentage looks a lot better.


#4024

IIRC, didn’t we come back in the 4th to beat Port in Rnd 3(?) 2018 and it was our best comeback in ages?

Different to putting the foot on the throat but shows we had ticker to burn in the 4th.

Anyone got any good tricks for getting plaster and concrete dust out of electronic equipment? Part of my roof just collapsed onto a whole bunch of gear. Got a screwdriver and some compressed air. Any other tips?


#4026

Brush and compressed air. Compressed air can end up poking dust into deep little corners, and you can be better off getting a brush in there first to lift it up.

Obviously make sure the brush isn’t conductive.

I’m always surprised by how robust PCBs are.


#4027

Ah yes, the right brush.

It’s in everything

Put a flyer up at your local university for volunteers looking to gain experience in archaeological methods in a modern period dig.


#4029

I’ve known some of the local archaeology students. I’m not letting them anywhere near my stuff


#4030

OK, air is probably not going to cut it and water could cause some damage to the equipment but what about petrol? Just run a hose from a Jerry can to a Gerni and it should just wash away the plaster and evaporate, leaving your equipment pristine.


#4031

You’re on the right track machina, … but Isopropyl alcohol is what you want here.

Far too much residue from Petty.


#4032

Yeah some things are going to have to be cleaned that way. I just pulled apart my mixing console, for probably the first time in its life and there’s some grimy buildup in there. Oh well, good excuse for an overdue internal cleaning


#4033

What’s up with court room sketch artists?

How come some court rooms allow photographs and some others get a dude doing finger painting?


#4034

Who was the major competitor to Cogswell’s Cogs?


#4035

Specely Sprockets


#4036

Indeed it was.
Well done.


#4037

It was actually Spacely Sprockets


#4038

Ah, I misread that post.
You are quite correct.


#4039

Really you’re going to get me on a spelling error, in this place.

Alright then, technically, it’s actually Spacely Space Sprockets Inc.


#4040

So what was Spacely’s first name?


#4041

Same as Kramer’s first name.


#4042

Kramer Spacely? You sure?
